Orioles sent RHP Oliver Drake outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

After being added to the 40-man roster last fall, Drake was limited to just three starts this season due to shoulder problems. He'll hope for better luck in 2013.

Jose Quintana was brilliant in Saturday's victory over the Mariners, striking out eight over 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

Quintana scattered five hits and one walk on the evening. The White Sox have struggled to provide him with run support for most of the season, and on a night where he didn't need much they poured on nine runs for him. Now 11-9 on the season, he'll head into Thursday's start against the Twins in Minnesota with a fantastic 2.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 150/39 K/BB ratio over 172 1/3 innings on the season.

Brandon Belt was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Braves due to a stiff neck.

It's probably safe to call him day-to-day. Conor Gillaspie will fill in at first base and bat fifth.

Blake Snell exited Saturday's start against the Astros in the bottom of the fourth inning after he was hit in the left foot by a comebacker.

Snell gave up four runs on nine hits before exiting and was replaced by Danny Farquhar. The Rays should pass along an update soon.

Shin-Soo Choo (forearm) said Saturday that he hopes to make it back for the postseason.

Choo underwent surgery earlier this month to repair a fracture in his forearm and is expected to miss around eight weeks. Going by this timeline, the earliest he could return is October 12. However, he's holding out hope that he could be available for the ALDS, which begins on October 6. "I have a plan, I have a goal, I have the confidence," said Choo. "I still have a chance. I know the [regular] season is over but it’s still not over for 2016. If I hit in seven [weeks], maybe [earlier]." The Rangers signed Carlos Gomez after his injury and have installed him as their regular left fielder.

Lucas Giolito will start Sunday against the Rockies.

As expected. The Nats needed someone to fill in for Reynaldo Lopez, who was just sent down to the minor leagues. Giloito's first stint in the majors didn't go as well as hoped but the right-hander still boasts impressive velocity and a devastating curve ball. There's no guarantee Giolito will get more than a turn or two with Joe Ross (shoulder) and Stephen Strasburg (elbow) both on the comeback trail.

Hunter Pence (hamstring) is not in the Giants' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

Pence hasn't played since leaving Thursday's game with hamstring tightness. Gorkys Hernandez will draw the start in right field Saturday while batting eighth against Braves righty Mike Foltynewicz. The Giants are hoping Pence will return for Sunday's series finale.

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-6 and clobbered a pair of home runs as the Rockies dispatched of the Nationals 9-4 in 11 innings in Washington on Saturday afternoon.

Blackmon's solo shot off of Alex Cole in the third inning opened the scoring in the contest. He then blasted a game-changing two-run homer off of Yusmeiro Petit in the 11th inning that proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Blackmon finished the afternoon 3-for-6 with three runs scored and three RBI and is now hitting .318/,378/.540 with 23 long balls, 63 RBI and 15 stolen bases on the season.

Bryce Harper was ejected for arguing balls and strikes Saturday against the Rockies.

Harper got his money's worth on this one. He slammed his helmet down right in front of home plate umpire Mike Winters after a called strike three in the 10th inning and was immediately tossed. Before his outburst, Harper went 1-for-4 with a walk and an RBI double. Chris Heisey replaced him in right field. Harper will almost certainly be fined for his behavior and could even be looking at a short suspension. This was Harper's eighth career ejection and his second of the season.

Gerrit Cole (elbow) will not make his scheduled start Monday against the Cubs.

Instead he'll fly to Los Angeles where he'll be examined by famed surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Cole admitted Saturday that he hadn't thrown a bullpen session since his last start on Wednesday, which should have been the first clue that something was wrong. The Pirates aren't concerned about ligament damage, which is obviously a positive sign. Trevor Williams, Drew Hutchison and Stephen Brault are all possibilities to start Monday's series opener.
Aug 27 - 5:26 PM

Matt Carpenter is not in the Cardinals' lineup Saturday against the Athletics.

Carpenter is just getting a breather. Brandon Moss will handle first base in his absence and bat third against A's right-hander Zach Neal. Carpenter enjoyed a monster first half but has slumped since the All-Star break (.219 AVG in 73 at-bats).
Aug 27 - 4:55 PM

Gary Sanchez continued his historic home run barrage on Saturday, blasting a solo homer off Dylan Bundy in the fourth inning of a 13-5 win over the Orioles.

With that long ball, Sanchez is now the fastest player in MLB history to reach 11 home runs, accomplishing the feat in only 23 games. He has now hit 10 homers in his last 12 contests and is showing no signs of slowing down. Fantasy owners who scooped him up off of the waiver wire early on are reaping tremendous rewards that could decide the championship in many season-long leagues. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a pair of walks on Saturday and is now hitting .400/.467/.900 with 11 bombs and 21 RBI on the season.
